Walpurgis night celebration with no bonfire

2022-04-28 

After two years with cancelled celebrations due to the pandemic, there will now be a Walpurgis night celebration on Saturday April 30 at Kungsbäck. However, the celebration will be slightly different from other years.

Celebrate Walpurgis night at Kungsbäck

As whooper swans have built their nest near the May bonfire, the bonfire will not be lit. But there will still be a celebration! It will take place indoors in the University’s lecture hall Valhall and outdoors near the Pinetska danspaviljongen in Regementsparken.

The spring concert with the male choir Gefle Drängar och Gävle Vokalensemble will take place in the University’s lecture hall Valhall at 7 pm. Tickets are now for sale at Depeschen in Flanör but can also be bought at the entrance.

After the concert, a student torchlight procession, organised by Gelfe Student Union, will march from Stora Vall towards Regementsparken at around 9 pm. The programme at the Pinetska danspaviljongen will be opened by the choir Gefle Drängar and to help us celebrate the arrival of spring we will also have a magical fire performance display to dazzle and amaze.

Then there will be speeches by the Chair of the Student Union Emelie Carlström and University Director Micael Melander. The master of ceremonies is Lars Söderberg.

All are welcome!
